Abundance Didn’t Live Here Today

I complained a lot today.  I did a lot of things without a good attitude today.  I didn’t focus on living my life with abundance.  I let other people bother me.  And I recognize that it was my choice to remain mentally in that place all day.  I’m voicing my disappointment with how I acted today in words because I want the words to haunt me tomorrow.  I want to remember the bad day so I can try to redirect tomorrow.

Tonight I focused on re-aligning my priorities.  I did a few things I didn’t want to do, but really needed to complete.  Welcome satisfaction!  I had a conversation with a friend and tried to moderate my approach and response when I realized I was pushing his buttons.  Welcome giving attitude and friendship!  I read and watched a few things around the internet that gave me a mini spark.  Welcome creativity!

I think I have a voice in my head that asks me for perfection everyday.  I’m so, so very far from perfect, but yet it asks me daily.  I think I’d like to retrain it this year to ask for abundance.  I want that positive One Little Word that I chose to resonate on days like this.  Maybe after a few weeks or months of focusing on abundance, I’ll have the power to shift a day like this mid course, to really adjust my attitude and take the day in a more positive and abundant direction mid stream.  That’s what I want from #olw this year.

And now, the first in a series of photographs of my paper whites.  They were a lovely gift from a wonderful friend.  When they came here on Monday, they were very small bulbs, with almost no green peeking out.  In just 4 days they’ve really started to grow.  Apparently the bulbs will flower and smell very good.  I’m looking forward to that little ray of sunshine in these very grey Pittsburgh days.
